SwiftKey. However, users with Nexus devices who upgrade to Android 4.2 might find that their installation of SwiftKey gets completely deleted upon upgrading.

CyanogenMod and you've been lucky enough to get your hands on a Nexus 4, then you're in for a treat. The CyanogenMod team announced on Google Plus that they're rolling out the first Nexus 4 (mako) nightly build for CyanogenMod 10.1, which is based on Android 4.2. The team is doing this because they've seen Nexus users installing third party CyanogenMod 10.1 builds, so they thought they'd take advantage of the demand they've been seeing and begin releasing nightlies.
ASUS wants a slice of that pie for itself. iAfrica reports that ASUS is planning to launch a new 7-inch tablet dubbed the ME-172 early next year with a price tag that can challenge that of the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.

Android 4.2 now running on at least a few devices, it's time for developers to update their apps to support the features found in the new version of the Android OS.

ASUS is reported to be working on an Android 4.2 update for its tablets. We are not quiet sure which models are receiving this update, but it seems logical that the mid to high-end models would get 4.2 from ASUS. The report implies that its Transformer tablets would be receiving the update, and those definitely seem like the most logical models to get it.
Nexus 4? Well let's be honest, finding one is easier said than done right now. TalkTalk in the UK is listing a white Nexus 4 on its website for preorder, and if the way the phone is selling currently is any indication, you will probably need to preorder if you actually want to get one of the devices in white for yourself.
Android 4.2 added the ability to have widgets right on your lockscreen. Not like many 3rd party custom skin shortcuts but full out Android widgets. While we're still on the fence as to if we like the implementation, our absolute favorite widget pack HD Widgets was just updated with full support. Check it out below!
Google's made Android 4.2 completely official, pushing the update out to the Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, as well as AOSP we figured a quick video was in order. Obviously you've seen plenty of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean from our LG Nexus 4 and 10 review, but today we're taking a look at a few new features on the Nexus 7. Those being the brand new multiple user accounts, as well as lockscreen widgets to name a few.
Android 4.2 yet, but if you are, there's a pretty good chance you've encountered some issues with Google Voice. The app hasn't been functioning properly ever since Android 4.2 landed, but thankfully those frustrating days are over (at least until the next version of Android hits). Google pushed out an update for Google Voice today that fixes the app's compatibility issues with Android 4.2, and it's available on the Google Play Store now.
